Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Colorado Native is a hand crafted lager made with all Colorado ingredients that celebrates the joys of life in Colorado.

Hold up a pint of Colorado Native and drink in its amber lager color, brought to life with pale and caramel malts from our famous Moravian 2-row barley. We painstakingly balanced its malt character against select Chinook, Centennial and Cascade hops to create a perfectly balanced, full-flavored beer. A lager yeast fermentation gives Colorado Native a slight fruitiness, complementing a citrus aroma note from a late kettle hop addition. Everything then comes together to deliver a clean taste and dry finish that is very drinkable by itself, or paired with your favorite foods.

In the denver airport, on tap.
A: clear rich copper, no head (must have been a bad pour)
S: Caramel malt, a little grain, some floral hops.
T: Layers of malt: caramel, bready, toffee. Hops add a little crispness and keep the malty sweetness from becoming cloying, but...it is all about the malt on this one.
M: crisp but fairly sweet and very little bitterness. Medium carbonation and kind of surprisingly thin and watery.

Overall: Not bad, I'd do it again, and I don't regret choosing it instead of the Fat Tire that was my only other option.
